Q:What style of cartoon do you draw? Will my guests be insulted?
A: I describe my cartoons as what you would look like if you starred in your own Cartoon series. Previous guests have described my style as “sooo cute” “Oh , I look so young” .
N.B- No big noses or ears in my drawings . Although I can’t say the same about hair and eyelashes. I do enjoy luscious locks.
Q:Why do you draw on a tablet and not pen and paper?
A: I find drawing on an iPad pro gives me more flexibility than when I used paper and pencil.
It allows me to draw couples and groups easily,
I can cut and paste guests into another drawings ,no need to draw twice.
I can offer digital copies of the drawing. No need to carry about large bits of paper that could get damaged.
Q: Are on-the-spot caricatures suitable for large weddings?
A: Absolutely! Because:
not all of your guests will want a cartoon drawn .
some enjoy watching the cartoons being created on a monitor attached to my easel ,
some enjoy asking about the technology I use.
others have fun with the folks in the hot seat.
All of which contribute to the relaxed and light-hearted atmosphere.
Q: What if my guests are shy and don’t want to sit still or be stared at?
A: Nobody likes a strange person staring at them for any length of time . This is why I take a reference photo as well as occasionally looking at the person I’m drawing. This means your guests can relax chat and drink prosecco without feeling watched.
Q: Can couples and groups be drawn together?
A: Whilst every caricaturist is different, I prefer drawing couples and groups as opposed to one guest at a time. This is because:
Having groups of guests joking and laughing around my easel attracts more onlookers and creates a brilliant buzz in the room.
I have found I draw more people when they come with friends as I can spend less time waiting for folks to get comfy and more time drawing .
In my experience I have found your guests are more likely to come up to have a caricature drawn if they can approach me with a friend or family member for moral support.
Q: Do my guests get a drawing to take home?
A Every guest who has a caricature drawn will receive a 4x6 inch print and access to a free digital copy through your dedicated blog post featuring all the cartoons drawn on the day. Organisers of the event are encouraged to visit the page to download all the cartoons created on the day.
Q: Will you have time to draw the Newlyweds?
A: It is very unlikely the couple will have time to sit for a cartoon so I will take a photo of the guest of honour or couple then draw their cartoon in the same style as the guests but in colour and email it to them within a week along with a link to their webpage where they can view all the cartoons drawn on the day.
